The Zen of Opera

“The heart of Zen is the practice of zazen — seated, silent meditation — which is based predominantly on bringing your attention to the present moment (often via concentrating on your breath) and then doing your best to keep it there.”

Same with bel canto singing (except it is not silent) (and not necessarily seated).
